Why doesn't she just admit that her city has a lower homicide rate than many, many cities but there is nothing that can be done because hundreds of thousands of multi-generational welfare queens had as many as they could for a big, juicy welfare check and all the benefits that go along with it. Another thing is lots of welfare queens also use their subsidized housing as leverage to recruit as many bad boy parolee's as possible into their lives and have baby after baby. The children they have they can't take care of and voila 15 or 20 years later they are hardened gangsters.

I have a feeling that this is the calm before the storm. Many poor women and parolee men are having been having as many children as possible that they don't have the slightest idea how to take of, so in a decade or two many big Democratic, liberal cities might be much worse then today.

I guess there is far worse than Chicago as far as homicides per-capita but still interesting how last month she said when she was elected "“Enough of the shootings. Enough of the guns. Enough of the violence,”

The mayor also said last month " “no higher calling than restoring safety and peace in our neighborhoods,”

Looks like this new liberal Democratic mayor has already failed. She is just another Democrat that gives speeches but has no policy and no solution to anything. Just a bunch of excuses and arrogance.

Only 27 shootings in Chicago on a Saturday? Seems a tad slow for a weekend in June.

Maybe everybody was out of town this weekend.

Yup. Irresponsible lifestyles, and coddling social polices that subsidize them, cause this violence. But they are going to blame racism and law-enforcement, vote democrat, and the cycle will continue.

Let's flag this thread, and though I will be dead, people can continue to talk about it 50 years from now when everything is exactly the same, except that the whites and Hispanics have merged, and there are no more Caucasians to blame.

More of the same.

Those tough gun laws are really doing a lot of good.

Its Chicago and this is their norm. AS I used to teach in leadership training.. You get what you accept.

Chicago has gang problems, drug problems, a large segment of the population has a complete distrust of law enforcement and refuse to cooperate. It's easier to just complain and make excuses.

My favorite excuse for Chicago gun violence is guns are easy to buy in Indiana. Well why doesn't Indiana and everywhere else where guns are easy to buy, have Chicagos problems?

The funny thing is that most of Chicago is pretty safe. Everyone knows what the problem is, but due to political correctness, no one wants to identify the problem. Thus, gun violence in Chicago will go on forever.

Look at it like a rapid form of justice. Criminals are killing criminals, so it is saving the government millions of dollars in expenses for their imprisonment, housing, and foodstamps.

Have you ever wondered whether the city government and the police force are okay with the gun violence on the south side? In high school, we would occasionally drive around in the south side, never stopping at traffic lights or stop signs. It is like a land in which rules no longer exist. It was dangerous then- it is dangerous now. It will never change- except for the worse. East St. Louis in the making.

Good post. Another observation is that Hispanics will likely lean conservative at that time due to leftists attempts to abolish their religion and their family units.

Trump said he would fix this.


https://www.politico.com/story/2018/...ime-doj-880976

Trump on Monday said he has directed the Justice Department to work with law enforcement in Chicago to “straighten out the terrible shooting wave” in the city. “We’re going to straighten it out. We’re going to straighten it out fast."

It's the culture. The kids grow up with shootings and drugs as the norm. So they carry it on. Generation after generation.
